I wanted to make my boyfriend something for Christmas and I loved this mercury colored grey shirting. It’s very comfortable/casual, but smart enough to wear to work. I think he likes it OK, but doesn’t really dig the collar which, I think, is partly due to some tailoring faux pas as well as the sheer girth of it. I think if I use this pattern again, I might cut the interfacing out of the collar and make it a bit smaller… he’s not really into wearing ties, and it seems to me that this collar is made for ties.
